As we promised last week, we begin this edition of the podcast with a chat about Jordan Eberle, and his shooting. We then go on to discuss Vincent Lecavalier, Phil Kessel, the "code" for fighting, and the extreme zone start deployment we're seeing all across the league. 

We would love to hear from you, the listener, for suggestions on future topics of discussion. Rather than us just being in our own little world, we'd like to make this as interactive a show as possible. Feel free to tweet at either Dimitri or Cam.
